The coveted fig picking season is back, so we can enjoy heading up into the hills and collecting our fruit direct from the source.
Willabrand Australia (Glen Ewin Estate) are throwing open their gates from February 12 for visitors to pick their own figs (while figs last!).
Willabrand Australia is an award-winning family owned business specialising in fig products, with 12,000 tree orchards at Glen Ewin Estate.
Managed using certified organic products that maximise their fabulous flavour, this is the perfect place to enjoy a different and unique experience with picking your own.
Glen Ewin Estate also boasts a Figbar for a drink post picking, and if you’re after some food, there’s the option to pre-order a picnic hamper, prepared by the Glen Ewin Chef.
The Figbar is open for food Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and there is plenty of shade under the London Plane trees.
Cost: $5 to enter, kids under 12 free. Figs are $10.00/kg.
Condition of Entry: Enter at own risk, full disclaimer to be completed upon registration, external food and drinks not permitted due to current biosecurity risk such as fruit fly and phylloxera
Recommendations: Enclosed walking shoes, sun protection, stay hydrated
